Metiria stood with the Indian Students fighting exploitation and deportation in the sanctuary of the Unitarian Church.
Metiria stood in solidarity with Unite Union workers who took strike action to defeat zero hours contracts.
She has been subjected to a vicious avalanche of manufactured outrage from media pundits, vilified by the rabid right wing and betrayed by opportunists within the left.
Her crime- to fight for the unemployed, beneficiaries and the poor.
A lot of people are sickened by what passes for politics in this country.
Thank you Metiria for being on our side fighting when it counts.
- Joe Carolan, Socialist Aotearoa.
